PSIA Seminar: ‘The other Austrians’: Austria’s Challenges to Become a Multiethnic and Multicultural State

October 17, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

About the Event:

Among the 8.82 mln. people inhabiting Austria, every fifth Austrian has a so-called migration background, and 15.8% of the total population are foreign-born residents. Austria’s population is thus divided into “native Austrians” representing the majority, the traditional ethnic minorities and new ethnic minorities with migration-background (Turks, people from former Yugoslavia) having already naturalized or not yet. And since summer 2015 a fourth group of population with differing ethnicity/language/religion has shown up: refugees with 90.000 applications of asylum. This lecture gives an overview into the actual situation of traditional and new minorities, migrants and refugees in Austria.

About the Speaker:

Jasmine Dum-Tragut, Assoc. Professor of Armenian Studies and General Linguistics and Director of the Center for the Study of the Christian East (ZECO) at Salzburg University (Austria).
